Extreme example of art becoming commercial

From handmade Capri sun totes

To Capri sun backpacks at Walmart?

Yes, I was shocked too. Leave it to Walmart to exploit any and everything with originality for the sake of making a buck.

This also arises the question as to whether these backpacks at walmart are even made of actual capri sun packs. I highly doubt that we could expect walmart to use a recycled item to produce something. Or are they just made to look like capri sun? And if they are just made to look like capri sun and are not recycled, does capri sun get any of the profit? Undoubtedly so.
